Warning: Spoilers that may or may not be true. Just sayin’.
What does Gloria do for her psychotic man-child when he comes home bloodied after murdering a male prostitute? She gives him some new play toys, the Tattler twins, courtesy of Elsa. Jealously & delusional ambition drove Elsa to show up at the Mott mansion with the twins. She’s getting rid of her Freak Show’s top attraction that also is her competition for the spotlight & fame thanks to Stanley’s fake plans to make the twins’ stars. With the twins missing, his plan backfired and he lost his top pick of freaks to sell to the Morbidity Museum. This makes him even more desperate & dangerous to kill some freaks.
The official synopsis for tonight’s AHS Freak Show episode 6 titled “Bullseye” reads, ” While Elsa Mars reveals a new sideshow act that could have disastrous consequences, Stanley begins pressuring Maggie to take Jimmy’s life, and Paul indulges in a romance that he struggles to keep a secret.”
Of course the freaks notice the missing twins, and Paul & Ethel confront Elsa about their disappearance. Elsa unveils a dangerous new act to the fill the void left by the twins. It’s a rotating human size bullseye. She wickedly tests it out by making some of her freaks take turns spinning on it as the daggers go flying at them. Is it an illusion or are they real daggers? Does Paul make it out of the practice alive after his confrontation with Elsa?
Happy Birthday Fraulein Elsa! Is she in a celebrating mood for being one year older? I’m not sure of the context, but Elsa will be singing another song in this episode. What does she sing? Is it supposed to be a replacement song after her disastrous popcorn pelting performance last week? Well instead of singing in a blue suit, she’ll be singing something by Ol’ Blue Eyes. Finally you freaktards can stop bitching about the out of date songs because she will sing a torch song, “September Song” (1946) by Frank Sinatra, and Elsa’s version is already on iTunes.
Who is Paul having a romance with? Is it another freak, or is it someone local from Jupiter? Will Maggie thwart Stanley’s plans and go with her heart to help Jimmy? Does Regina come to Jupiter looking for her mother, Dora? Will a freak die tonight? I say yes, at least one maybe two. I hope they don’t go the easy route and hurt Ma Petite. Of all the freaks, it will hurt my soul if writers take the easy way out and kill that defenseless lady. Yes we all have seen the spoiler promo video of her being drowned, but just like last week’s double fake death scenes you never know what is real or fantasy. I hate foilers (fake spoilers). And it goes without saying DO NOT FUCKING HURT MY PEPPER, or her buddy Salt.
I’m disappointed to say that I’m short on juicy spoilers this week. I guess Ryan Murphy is the only one allowed to spoil because FX managed to get a good source of spoilers suspended from Twitter; and RM himself hasn’t give any new revealing interviews for this episode. So while trolling the net I found other spoilers that may or may NOT be true.
Penny (Grace Gummer), the candy striper from episode 1, will be back. Remember Elsa got her high on opium and filmed her in the midst of a freak orgy to blackmail her from going to the police. Another rumor is that we will see Andy (Matt Bomer) one more time in this episode though it was stated that he was only doing one episode. Last time we saw Andy he was still alive while being dismembered by Dandy. Maybe he’s in a flashback scene?
To find out what happens watch AHS: Freak Show tonight at 10 ET on FX, and it’s another extended episode at 73 minutes long. Am I ever going to get break from recapping these terrific long ass shows? As always please join our smart & sometimes stupid AHS discussion below, and come back here later for my recap. While I’m still chained to TT’s radiator you can stalk me on Twitter @Urethra_F
